Oh goodie, another update!!
Ivie turned one yesterday!
She’s grown up to be just over 9 pounds, and is such a fun combination of playful and snuggle puppy. She likes to go for walks and jogs, loves hikes and playing in the backyard with the kids. Playing in the backyard = sprinting around the yard in circles, while my son chases her. She’s fast! She’s gotten through the STAR puppy test, and knows her commands, even if she occasionally likes to ignore them and run in the yard instead.
In the morning, she waits right by the couch for my husband or I to get our coffee, then jumps up to curl up in one of our laps for a few minutes. She snuggles with my daughter in the evening, and she sleeps with my son. We sometimes find her, sitting on his bed just waiting for him to come to bed.
She’s a great mix for our family – active enough to keep up with an outdoorsy family while also enjoying her spot in a lap or by the fire. She’s brought so much love into our house!
(Also, the kids like to take a lot of pictures with her! Don’t mind the bad haircut – groomers are shut here, so we had to do it ourselves this time!)
We truly can’t imagine life without her. Thanks so much!
